Complementary narrowband technologies are connecting new devices and industries.

LTE IoT delivers a scalable platform for connecting a wide-range of consumer, enterprise, and industrial IoT applications—transforming a wide range of industries by giving machines, devices, sensors, and objects the ability to connect and communicate reliably and securely, virtually anywhere, 24/7. 

LTE IoT evolution is foundational to 5G.

Both eMTC and NB-IoT will support in-band deployment with 5G NR in 5G spectrum which is expected in 3GPP Release 16, and they will be submitted with 5G NR to meet IMT-2020 5G requirements. LTE IoT will continue to evolve to bring advanced capabilities such as grant-free uplink, and multi-hop mesh.

Driving broad ecosystem adoption of LTE IoT.

We are bringing global cellular connectivity to a wide variety of IoT applications by offering a comprehensive portfolio of Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors and LTE modems. MDM9206 (LTE multimode modem supporting Cat-M1 + Cat-NB1 + E-GPRS) is just one example of our cost-optimized, flexible, and scalable chipsets tailored to power the IoT.

Qualcomm Snapdragon is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Expanding the reach of mobile to new IoT services.


5G NR is initially targeting enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) in 2019, but it will evolve to address a broader set of IoT devices and services.


Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication supports enhanced automotive safety, and it will fuel the future of autonomous driving.
